Remember those bright red fruit roll-ups you used to eat as a child? Remember how they used to turn your tongue red and they mostly tasted like flavored sugar? When I was a kid, I ate these fruit-roll ups on the daily, and the exorbitant amounts of sugar and corn-syrup contained in these kinds of snacks made me incredibly sick and I'd always spend the day with a stomach-ache.
Well, we have now come up with a solution! These fruit roll-ups taste like candy, are refined sugar-free, and contain necessary nutrients from real fruit. The awesome thing about this recipe is that you can tweek this recipe to your liking. I'd highly recommend tasting your fruit puree before drying it, and if you feel like it needs more sweeter or cinnamon, you do you. You also don't have to use plums. Whatever fruit you like will make this recipe delicious and successful!
Plum Fruit Leather
6 cups plums (cut in half and pitted, they do not have to be peeled)
1/2 cup raw honey
2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. ground cinnamon (if desired)
1/4 tsp. cloves (if desired)
